Comment (by mattlgnu):


 f you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
 possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
 free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these

 To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest to
 attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively convey
 the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the
 "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.

 one line to give the program's name and an idea of what it does.
